Daniel (Dan aka Magic) - 7th Woking

Dan - 7th WokingI am so excited and grateful at being given the opportunity to attend the World Scout Jamboree. I know how fortunate I am and how much the trip will benefit me through meeting and learning about other people from other cultures around the world. 

I am really looking forward to the community project work we will be doing in Thailand. It will be a great chance to leave the Thai people with a lasting memory of the Jamboree.

A bit about me

I was born and have lived in Woking all my life. I am a keen kayaker and hold my BCU 3* award and Form W, which allows me to help instruct younger Scouts, something I really enjoy.

I am a student in the Sixth Form at Gordon's School, Lightwater, where I am studying for my A levels. The school is quite unique, being a memorial to General Gordon, with a strong military flavour to it's history. I am a member of the Combined Cadet Force and have completed my Duke of Edinburgh Silver Award.
